SOME RAP SONGS
The odd future man has dropped a hip-hop album to unite us residents, with gorgeously detailed production coalescing with verses that split the difference between radical and chill.
These fifteen tunes barely scratch the 2-minute mark, the set melding together into one sublime flow, making for a hugely satisfying whole. This album is a place where an old school cut ‘n sample hip-hop sensibility sits easily with soul/jazz nods and deeper, more involving contemporary sound worlds. This is an instant hit in the mould of madvillainy, no less! “in a lineage of truly great MCs from Nas to Cardi B, who can turn a melody out of an idle utterance…powerful, emotional poetry” 5* - guardian, “the onetime teen prodigy reemerges as the face of a new sound and scene that blurs the line between avant-garde jazz and hip-hop.” 8.8 best new music - pitchfork
